Album Review: The Subways - 'Money And Celebrity'
Tides turn from indie to popMore on The Subways
3 / 10 “It’s a party/And don’t you know it don’t get much better!” (‘It’s a Party’). No-one’s saying The Subways haven’t pioneered a new paradigm for the punk-rock genre, but after two albums treading water in the tricky oceans of landfill indie, the tides are turning. Single ‘We Don’t Need Money To Have A Good Time’, which should – in a dearth of cheap, blistering, recession-ready pop-rants – be absolutely zeitgeist-bothering is just more 10-a-penny tedium from Welwyn Garden City’s rock’n’roll quacks. The absence of irony is almost commendable, but ultimately you have to wonder who keeps inviting them to all these parties.
